Our team will gather information about your project through the Discovery Form or by scheduling a Discovery Call.

We’ll set up a showroom or virtual meeting to discuss:

1. Kitchen Layout and Ideas

  • Appliance needs – a critical first step
  • Room conditions (i.e. island, ceiling, 2 tiers of cabinets, initial thoughts on cabinet finishes)

2. Cabinet Construction Methods and Cost Categories

  • Dean Cabinetry offerings for stock, semi-custom and custom cabinets

3. Timing Needs for Cabinetry

  • When will you need your cabinets?
  • What other work is being done for the kitchen project (i.e. plumbing, electrical, moving walls, windows, or doors, etc) ?
  • Choosing a contractor – Do you need a contractor or help finding one?


To move on to Budgeting, we’ll need appliance selections and rough dimensions of your space.

Once we’ve had the opportunity to understand the basics of your kitchen project, we want to work on determining your budget. This stage of our process isn’t about nailing down the exact cost and design of your kitchen, it is more about providing you with options and explaining what the value of each option is.  To start, your designer will prepare and email you multiple budget options along with some proposed meeting times.  Typically, we budget each project with an option for each cabinetry level; stock, semi-custom and fully custom. These cabinetry levels are more determined on finish, style, and size attributes rather than quality. We work with only the best stock cabinetry manufacturers. Once you review the budget options and ask questions about each, our designer will have a better idea on how to start crafting your new kitchen design.

Our rule of thumb is once we invest about 5 hours into the Discovery and Budgeting phase, we will ask for a verbal commitment to use us as your kitchen cabinet partners. Are you happy with us and the budget options provided? If yes, let’s get to into Design!

Design is where we dive into the finite details of your project.  Your designer will review your layout in detail to answer questions like; Does anything need to be moved to improve movement and functionality in your kitchen?  Do you prefer drawers or rollouts?  Do you need any cabinet accessories? Will your island be a different finish than the rest of your cabinetry? 

There will be phone calls, emails, and meetings.  You will work with your designer to turn your vision into a reality.

This is also where other designers, contractors, and service providers may get involved so that we can plan your project thoroughly.

The ordering phase of our process is when your cabinetry gets made, either in-house for custom cabinetry pieces, or by our trusted stock & semi-custom suppliers. We go through each cabinet, double-checking the measurements, as well as making notes and specifications for the provider.  For our custom cabinetry, we specify the exact details of your project so that our shop can build exactly what you’ve ordered.

Lead times for cabinetry can vary. Your lead time will likely begin when you place your deposit.  Stock cabinetry can be delivered the fastest, sometimes in as short as 4 weeks, and as long as 6 weeks. Semi-custom cabinetry can be 6 to 10 weeks. Custom cabinetry is usually 10 to 12 weeks.

During this lead time is the opportunity for you or your contractor to make other modifications to the space such as plumbing, electrical, flooring, framing etc.

The most exciting and fulfilling part, installation!

When your cabinetry is ordered, you will receive an email from your designer introducing you to our scheduling coordinator.  The scheduling coordinator will be organizing the installation and completion of your project.

We will put a tentative installation date on the calendar depending on your cabinet and project timeline.  This date can remain flexible to accommodate any contractor work that is happening during the ordering stage.

A member of our follow-up team will reach out to you to congratulate you on your project completion.  We will ask if we can come for a visit.  If you are willing, we will set a date, and meet at your newly completed project location.

With your permission, we’d love to take photos of your new kitchen to add to our website and our social media platforms to help future clients see what is possible for their kitchen.  We may also use your review to help clients understand the products and services they can expect by choosing Dean Cabinetry.
